Pro Women at Colorado Springs Pro XCT Short Track

Heather Irminger Wins Colorado Springs Pro XCT Short TrackToday was the first of 2 days of top level mountain bike racing in Colorado Springs. The Pro XCT Short Track was held on a course with a lot of tight singletrack and lap times under 3 minutes. Racers said it was tough to move up except on the short climb on a wide gravel path on the backside.

In the Pro Women’s race, a group of 4 formed at the front with Heather Irminger, Katie Compton, Catherine Pendrel and Katerina Nash. With a couple laps to go, Irminger and Compton opened a small gap.

Todd Wells and Jeremy Horgan-KobelskiIn the end hometown girl Compton couldn’t get around Irminger coming out of the final corner and had to settle for 2nd. Catherine Pendrel rounded out the top 3.

In the Pro Men’s race, it didn’t take Todd Wells and Jeremy Horgan-Kobelski long to open up a gap on the rest of the field. Wells pulled off the win with JHK coming in 2nd. Geoff Kabush finished out the podium.

The racing continues tomorrow at Cheyenne Mountain State Park with the cross-country race. I wrote some about the cross-country course a few days ago.

Starting tomorrow (Saturday) at 6PM, Peak Region Cyclist is hosting a party at McCabe’s Tavern downtown. Racers 1st drink is free with race number. There will be food and drink specials for everyone. Band starts at 9 PM.

I have posted more photos of the short track and cross country races.
